Visit from the USA

On their journey Julie and David visited Donostia last Friday, March 31,   where they joined our greeter Ana to know more about our city.
In the ride that carried out, they saw part of the history  and charms of Donostia,  appreciated the bustling pedestrian streets and the silence of MºCristina  botanic park, as well as the atmosphere of the Old Town, where they enjoyed fine cuisine.   8 more words
